A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Publishers Weekly best-selling author, Mary Jo Putney has also won numerous awards, including the Romantic Times Career Achievement Award for Historical Romance. In The China Bride, Putney once again enchants her many romance fans. Troth Montgomery spends most of her time disguised as a man, going by the name of Jin Kang. While working as a translator and a spy, she encounters viscount and adventurer Kyle Renbourne, and realizes that her life is about to take a significant turn. Relieved to discover the true identity of the lovely Troth, Kyle feels passion ignite and is driven to possess her. Together, they start on a dangerous quest, but fate steps in and separates the two lovers. Though haunted by despair, passion and danger, Troth becomes the woman she was destined to be. Exquisitely, narrator Davina Porter brings to life Putney's passionate characters--whose love endures the greatest challenge--finding that the joys far exceed the sorrows.
